Steven Khalil is recognised as one of Australia’s leading designers specialising in Couture, Red Carpet and Bridal gowns. His designs are renowned for their elegance, beauty and exquisite construction- combining classical elements of bygone eras with a contemporary edge.
Fascinated by fabrics at a very young age, Steven was obsessed with the fall and drape of material. After completing fashion studies at 19, Steven quickly began to gain recognition for the quality of his workmanship and eye for unique design. He rose rapidly through several bridal houses and at only 22, was appointed Head Designer. 2003 saw Steven establish his own fashion house, based in Paddington, Sydney.
Steven Khalil has continued to gather an exclusive and fashionable following of celebrity fans including Delta Goodrem, Dannii Minogue, Jessica Mauboy, Samantha Jade, Nikki Phillips, Kate Ritchie, Samara Weaving plus many more.
2014 will be an exciting time for the label and designer, with expansions internationally and some exclusive collaborations- along with the much anticipated Ready To Wear collection launching and a number of trunk shows, events and festivals that will all elevate and drive the already solid successes of this much cherished designer and label.
I adore this dress that I am wearing here – on so many levels. As soon as I saw it, it was love at first sight. It fit like a glove and the fabric just divine. I have so much respect for Steven as a designer – he can do no wrong in my eyes, as I have watched him dress women on the red carpet with perfection many times over. The best wedding dresses I have seen always seem to have his name next to them too!
